Download Overwatch 2 and Experience the Award-Winning Action of Blizzard's Sequel
I'm downloading the Overwatch 2 preload but the download speed in battle net is capping out at around 100kb/s so is taking forever. For the record my internet download speed is 300mbps. Is this just a me problem or has the download been capped at certain download speeds for everyone?

Blizzard Entertainment has recently shared some exciting news for Overwatch 2 players, as Season 4 is just around the corner and promises to bring a major update to the game. In a recent statement, the team confirmed that they would be consolidating all Overwatch 2 patches into the base game, a move that is necessary from time to time to ensure that the data size of the game client remains manageable for both PC and console players. The updates sound great, but Overwatch 2 is now troubled by its insane download sizes.
However, the update will require players to download a large file of up to 38GB, which may cause concern for those with limited internet data caps. As a result, Blizzard has suggested that players ensure they have enough space on their microSD cards before downloading the update, particularly if they are playing on the Switch platform. For those who are unable to free up enough space, the company has recommended deleting the game and redownloading it after Season 4 goes live on April 11.
If you own the original Overwatch, the sequel is available to you as an update (admittedly a very large update -- about 50GB on PC and 30GB on console), which means you don't need to download a separate game. Just go to the game, check for updates, and the Overwatch 2 update should begin to download immediately.
Overwatch 2 is free to download and play. You can acquire the season one premium battle pass for 1,000 credits (a $10 purchase), and buy cosmetics in the shop with that same currency. If you've bought the Watchpoint Pack (available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Switch), you'll automatically unlock the premium battle pass and receive some legendary skins and 2,000 credits -- enough for two more premium battle passes. If you don't unlock new heroes in the battle pass where they debut, they'll be purchasable in the shop or unlockable through future challenges.
